IDLE suffered a blow to their title and promotion hopes in the Yorkshire Amateur League Division One after a damning defeat.

A disappointing performance saw Idle lose 4-1 away to mid-table Beeston Juniors Old Boys.

Tom Simonett scored the consolation for the visitors with a shot from the edge of the area that squirmed under the goalkeeper.

But, a Ryan Dawson brace and one each for Ash Knowles and Kev Napier, put Idle to the sword.

All is not lost though, as the three teams above Idle either had no fixture or lost, leaving them still only three points shy of joint leaders Collegians and Amaranth Crossgates.

At the other end of the table in the Premier Division, it was all change as the relegation battle rumbles on.

Athletico are coming into form at a crucial time and put their second win in a row on the table when they beat Horsforth St. Margaret's at home by six goals to three.

The hosts took a two goal lead in the first half before mid-table Horsforth drew level by half time.

Adeeb Jawad notched the opener for Athletico with marksman Mohammed Qasim grabbing the second.

But, he wasn't done there.

Qasim completed a hat-trick in the second period to give his side a commanding 4-2 lead.

Mahine Malik then joined the party to take it to 5-2, but Horsforth tried to fight their way back into it with a goal in response.

In the end, any semblance of a comeback was thwarted when Saad Abbas made it 6-3 for the hosts.

Joe Clapham, Harrison McPhee and Alex Bourke scored for Horsforth.

The win lifts Athletico into eighth, but they will need to continue their recent purple patch as they are still only two points above the drop.

Occupying second bottom are Wibsey, who dropped into the bottom zone after a 4-2 home loss against fellow relegation candidates Ealandians.

Calverley were back to trying to secure Premier Division safety after making it to the final of the Bradford FA District Saturday Senior Cup in the week.

Third-placed Drighlington were the Owls' hosts on Saturday, and the visitors continued their cup exploits when running into a 3-0 lead through Louis Edmonds, Will Baker and Tom Hird.

Drig fought back to draw level, but could not snatch a victory in the end.

Calverley are in a similar position to Athletico, sitting only two points clear of Wibsey with a game in hand on the penultimate-placed side.

In Division Two, third-place Tyersal will need to win their final game to secure promotion, after missing the opportunity in a 3-1 home loss to Leeds City Reserves.

Chris Gibbons got the sole consolation goal for his side.

Fairbank United ended their season just behind Tyersal with a hard-fought 4-3 win against Trinity Old Boys.

They were behind 3-2 at the break, but battled back to win with goals from Abdullah Lone, Shahzad Ahmed and Junaid Ali brace.
